Dr. Christopher Whitt is once again joined by criminologist Dr. Amber Beckley. She is a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow who splits her time between Duke University and Stockholm University in Sweden.

In part one of the conversation, Beckley discussed her research, which deals with factors that cause people to commit crimes. She also talked about how her experience working and studying in Europe has influenced her perspective on crime in the United States. 

Produced by Lacy Scarmana
